Not a unique aroma or color. Taste is amazing! Sweet up front with a very tart finish. Very complex. Vanilla and caramel notes. Possibly the best cider Iíve ever had. Almost fun to drink.

Apple cider pour with a quick bubbly froth.
Aroma is fairly tame. Apple cider and light vanilla and toffee
Flavour is cider and deep rich caramel and vanilla. Very tasty, somewhat tangy cider finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a bubbly white head that starts at the edges and dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of sweet apple with a touch of vanilla and some underlying oakiness. Flavor is similarly sweet with lots of sweet apple and touches of vanilla and oak.

Incredible taste. First of the "Ice Cider" styles that Iíve tried. Been looking forward to it for a while. Very crisp. Nice, tasteful sweetness that isnít too dry or too cloying. Plays very well with the aroma. Very happy with the bottle and the style in general.

For once a cider on the market that is remarkably crisp and almost punches the palate with overpowering apple flavor along with strong toffee and caramel tastes. Its like a cinnamon caramel apple type flavor. The other ciders, even regular angry orchard tastes like juice with only light apple flavor. This on the other hand is very close to an actual home made cider, strong with a powerful crisp bite. If only this was easier to find and marketed as a regular cider, this is what you should expect it to taste like. I found it delicious and would drink it again if I was in the mood for cider. And for people who donít like beer it makes a good substitute. You wouldnít go wrong with this.

Lemme just put it straight, no hem hawing around, this is one of the boldest and best ciders one could ever hope to taste. Beautiful dark golden pour, virtually no head, heavy honeycrisp aroma. Itís almost to good to be drank just nay old time, I would call this a special occasion cider. Glass after glass, it never disappoints.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
THOUGHTS: A little sweeter than most of the Angry Orchards but definitely nowhere near cloying. Still finishes dry. Hid ABV very well. Almost like an apple wine.
TECHNICAL: Drank 5/5/2013. Bottle. Poured a clear, very light, golden orange with virtually no head, but it actually had nice legs. The aroma had apple, hints of cherry, sort of honey, hints of vanilla, alcohol, hints of caramel apple, something that reminded me of sake, hints of wood; and, when warmer, tart apple. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet and moderately sour and acidic with an average duration. There was apples, hints of caramel, hints of alcohol, hints of vanilla, apple juice, slight wood, tart apples and hints of lemon. Everything in the flavor was subtle except for the apples. The nearing medium body was ever so slightly syrupy, a little oily and then dry with soft but tingly carbonation and a dry and slightly alcoholic finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750mL bottle, pours a pretty clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of apples, caramelized sugar, and light toffee. Flavour isnít reminiscent of an ice cider, just a regular cider, with notes of apples, toffee and brown sugar. Nowhere near the complexity of a true ice cider. Certainly nice for a cider, but not up to par for an ice cider. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is toffee, tart apples, some booze and I am getting a woodsy scent, kind of like cedar. Looks like any other cider, perhaps more effervescent, but otherwise the same. Tastes like an oak aged cider; I like it because it is not so sour that it gives you heartburn and it does not have the annoyingly sweet aftertaste. Iím not a huge cider fan; I bought this one for my wifeís birthday, but this one is good. I donít know if itís worth $10, but better than other ciders I have had. Kind of unfair to judge a ciderís palate, how much of a palate could it really have? Liked it, wouldnít buy it again. If youíre really into cider I guess itís worth a try.
